Based off the standard Tucson, this new vehicle features red accents on the exterior, as well as roof racks, mudguards and custom cargo mats. There is even a Zombie Survival Kit that references points from the series, and while that guide won't provide tips for vehicle maintenance, it will help drivers take advantage of all the amenities. 

"'The Walking Dead' Special Edition Tucson represents a chance for loyal fans to show their enthusiasm for the graphic novel series," said Christine Jew, Tucson product planner. "The Tucson is versatile, responsive and fuel-efficient, allowing just enough room for those wisely-chosen passengers and supplies needed in the event of a zombie apocalypse or any survival scenario." 

This Tucson is just the latest in a long line of special vehicles that came about from the partnership between Hyundai and "The Walking Dead." Although there have been zombie survival machines and similar concepts in the past, this is the first that will go to showrooms across the U.S.
